Creating CO-OP-based classes to promote independent, interactive, and deep learning at schools for special needs children with physical disabilities
I will conduct research on active learning by introducing CO-OP (Child-Oriented Problem Solving Approach) into classes at special needs schools attended by children with cerebral palsy. I would like to develop the problem-solving skills of children with cerebral palsy.


CO-OP intervention for children with cerebral palsy is often conducted in occupational therapy settings, and there are few reports of CO-OP being used in classroom settings at special needs schools. By conducting this research, I intend to do our best to contribute to (1) the development of problem-solving skills in children with cerebral palsy, (2) the promotion of cooperation between education and medical care, and (3) the further development of education for children with physical disabilities in Japan.
